Operations were paused at one of the country’s main meat processing plants earlier this week after a number of its staff tested positive for Covid-19.

Scotbeef confirmed the cases at its Bridge of Allan plant and said a phased return to getting the facility up and running was already under way.

In a statement, the company said: “In the last few days a number of colleagues working at our Bridge of Allan plant have tested positive for coronavirus and are now self-isolating in line with national guidance.

“We take the welfare of our colleagues very seriously and are working with the relevant authorities to ensure everyone’s safety.

“All appropriate action has been taken and activity was paused on a temporary basis whilst all colleagues were tested. We continue to work closely with NHS Forth Valley’s Public Health Team who are providing advice and support to assist with a phased return to full operation over the coming days.”
